To Make Simple Two-Ingredient Slime

You need:

  • Two 4-ounce bottles of Elmer’s Washable School Glue
  • 1 bottle Sta-Flo Liquid Starch (usually found in the laundry aisle at the grocery store)
  • Food coloring or liquid watercolors (optional)

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Ages: Preschooler, Ages 5 and up

This Simple Two-Ingredient Slime recipe makes a great base for a multitude of fun slime variations. This is the stretchiest and longest lasting of our slime recipes!

This slime is only for children who understand not to taste the slime or touch their mouths while they play. Children should wash their hands after playing with this slime.

1. Pour your glue into a bowl or metal or glass container. The amount of slime you’d like to make will be controlled by the amount of glue you add. The amount of slime pictured in the photos requires two 4-ounce bottles of glue. If you are coloring your slime, add several drops of food coloring or several squirts of liquid watercolors to the glue and stir well.

2. Give your liquid starch container a few shakes as it has a tendency to settle over time. Slowly pour liquid starch into the glue mixture, about 1 tablespoon at a time, and stir thoroughly between each addition. Continue adding liquid starch to your slime until the slime is no longer sticking to the sides of the container. Watch for it to form a big clump in the center of your container.

3. Once your slime has formed a big clump, you can switch to stretching and kneading it by hand to mix it completely. If the slime continues to be sticky, add a bit more liquid starch, approximately 1 teaspoon at a time, and knead it in. On the other hand, if the slime is stringy and not sticky, add a bit more glue, 1 teaspoon at a time, and knead it in.

4. Continue stretching and folding the slime to combine it thoroughly. Within another 5 or so minutes, the slime will become uniform, smooth, and very stretchy. It’s now ready for play!

5. Store at room temperature in a sealed container, such as Tupperware or a Ziploc bag, when not in play. Simple Two-Ingredient Slime will keep for several weeks.

Product description


"150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids will take you back to a time before Minecraft when giggles didn't require an iTunes password. Chock-full of brilliant but simple ideas, this is a must-have for parents."  
--Bunmi Laditan, founder of and author of The Honest Toddler: A Child's Guide to Parenting
"This book will help you and your child reconnect with each other, with the world, and with the present."  
--Dr. Michael Rich, "The Mediatrician," founder and director, Center on Media and Child Health, Boston Children's Hospital^"The sticky, soapy, bubbly world of
150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids is absolutely magical. We go bananas for the creativity that oozes from the original projects that Asia creates!"  --Rachel Faucett, founder of and mother of five 
"Asia Citro's ideas are fresh and fun, and most important to me, always good for thinking, discovering, exploring and creating. This book is a top choice for parents who want their kids to discover the world through their own hands-on experiences."  --MaryAnn F. Kohl, bestselling author of over 20 children's art books^"The more important an activity is for living and learning, the more senses are involved.
150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids offers simple, attractive, hands-on experiences that integrate many senses, inviting kids to touch and move, see and hear, smell and taste. All children--especially those with sensory processing issues and other special needs--will joyfully get "in sync" with these fun and functional activities!"  --Carol Kranowitz, bestselling author of The Out-of-Sync Child^"Something I'm seeing more and more frequently these days is a toddler or young child intensely focused on a screen he is holding. I want to gently take it from his hands and say, "Look up, child! Look at the world around you! That's where life is." That's what Asia is doing: a smart, educated mom who understands what her kids really need and does her best to give it to them. Along the way, through her blog and this book, she is inspiring others to do the same."  --Trish Kuffner, bestselling author of The Toddler's Busy Book and The Preschooler's Busy Book^"Technology has certainly come a long way in providing kid-friendly programs that capture the attention of today's children but in order to build lasting knowledge about their world, young children need to use all of their senses. Asia has put together a brilliant book of simple ideas that will not only capture the attention of young children, but will also foster critical developmental skills as they use all of their senses to explore, imagine, and create through real world, meaningful, hands- on experiences."  --Deborah J. Stewart, and Ready for Kindergarten!^
